Macron rejects Trump's claim that Russian Federation controls Germany

Flake's advice to Trump on Putin meeting

President Donald Trump and German Chancellor Angela Merkel have met after the USA leader publicly lambasted the longtime ally over its spending on national defense and a Russian oil pipeline.

Trump-whose presidential campaign is now under investigation for possible collusion with the Russian government-launched his attack on Germany and other USA allies during breakfast with members of his cabinet, North Atlantic Treaty Organisation secretary general Jens Stoltenberg, and other alliance officials.

United States President Donald Trump on Wednesday accused Germany of becoming "a captive of Russia", while criticising Berlin for supporting a Baltic Sea gas pipeline deal with Moscow, Reuters reported. And you tell me if that's appropriate, because I think it's not. "He's a competitor. I think that getting along with Russian Federation, getting along with China, getting along with others is a good thing".

BBC reported Tuesday that European Council President Donald Tusk advised President Trump to appreciate the European allies of The United States.

"Many of us are concerned, I certainly am, about the President's ongoing rhetoric that really demeans or ridicules our allies and praises our adversaries", Flake said. "Today Europe spends on defense many times more than Russian Federation and as much as China".

NATO Ambassador Kay Bailey Hutchison said last week that now 16 of 29 countries are on track to meet that goal. The US is spending many times more than any other country in order to protect them, " Trump wrote. Trump responded, using Germany as an example. And that's fine. Of course, they kill us on trade.

The US president has been openly critical of many of NATO's practices, often railing against Washington spending more money on defence than other member states.

The U.S. President Donald Trump will soon be heading towards Europe to attend several key meetings.

"Dear President Trump: America does not have and will not have a better ally than Europe".

On the Putin summit, Mr Tusk said pointedly: "It is always worth knowing who is your strategic friend and who is your strategic problem".
